Nocturne Falls Series Books 1-12

  Synopsis -  Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. Book Review - This will be short and sweet just like each book in this series. I enjoyed all 12 books. The author found a winning formula and created a town that tourists wanted to visit year-round because they believed that the town was filled with actors who played dress-up. They had no idea that the vampire's teeth had a bite or that the gargoyle atop a building was real or that witches were casting actual spells. Each book in the series focuses on a new couple discovering each other. Each book was filled with light-hearted fun, a ton of angst, a little romance, and a little intrigue. The narrator for the series, BJ Harrison, is just as much a part of the town as the actual characters. I would recommend this series to anyone wanting a little light-hearted paranormal fun.

The Black Rose Killer

The Black Rose Killer by Linette King Synopsis -  Everyone handles childhood trauma differently. Some people make time to heal and grow. Some people hold on to it and history repeats itself. Then there are the saviors, the ones who want to prevent anyone from feeling the pain they felt. Those people are usually willing to do anything for someone they're trying to help. But how far is too far? At what point does the thin line between right and wrong blur? Find out in this story The Black Rose Killer. Book Review - I can't believe I'm three for three on my Halloween 2020 reads.  Linette King delivered an exciting story. I love her twisted mind. While the vigilante angle is not new, King made it her own. She weaved a perfect mystery with a couple of interesting turns. The story moved quickly and the plot was well developed. The characters and their individual stories were interesting as well. The only reason it isn't a 5-star rating is because of the few e

Yours Truly

Yours Truly by Omega Synopsis -  What did history tell you about a woman scorned? See what this she does in revenge that can affect her entire life and possibly even history as we know it...but a little different. The Jack The Ripper you think you know changes all in Yours Truly. Book Review - A woman driven to madness is what we are dealing with in The Ripper Book 1. Left by her husband after multiple miscarriages and a maddening single focus on given him a child.  After catching her husband in bed with a prostitute and her husband proclaiming that she was no longer his wife only this "carcass" whose sole focus was bearing him a child, our heroine goes into a state of madness. What's odd is that she drove her husband away for a child, he could do without if it meant still having his wife. This was a slight re-imagining of Jack the Ripper  . What if Jack the Ripper was a scorned woman instead of a mad man?  Jacqueline, our heroine, develops a severe dislik

Omega Rising: Origins of Agent Rusty Bones Book One

Omega Rising: Origins of Agent Rusty Bones Book One   by Douglas S Pierce Synopsis -  "It's going to be a wild one tonight." I uttered those prophetic words on Halloween. The same night I died in the line of duty. In life, I didn't believe in magick, monsters, religion, or souls. Funny how waking up dead with my consciousness trapped in an amulet provided such clarity. My name is Agent Rusty Bones, and this is my account of the rather dubious life-choices that landed me in the clutches of the ultra-secretive Omega Project. To solve my own death, I must now escape those holding my very essence in an iron-clad grip. But the clock is ticking. Can I bring my killer to justice before anyone else suffers my same fate?  Book Review -  Color me surprised when I read this book by Mr. Pierce. I had only read The Maiden's Song   by this author. I read a few other reviews and the comparison between Robocop meets Terminator only to find that they were right. Ru
